Dr. Amira Rose Davis (@mirarose88) is an Assistant Professor of History and African American Studies at Penn State University who works at the intersections of race, gender, sports, and politics. Her forthcoming book, "Can't Eat a Medal: The Lives and Labor of Black Women Athletes in the Age of Jim Crow," traces the long history of Black women's athletic labour and symbolic representation in the United States. She is one of the co-hosts of the popular feminist sports podcast, Burn It All Down, and is also a regular contributor to outlets such as NPR, ESPN, and the BBC.

She will be giving the keynote lecture for the Annual Macintosh Conference this year. Since it is virtual this year, it is open to all faculty and students.
